☘️ Indulge in some box set or movie action
Irish television and cinema is among the best in the world. With some iconic actors such as Brendan Gleeson ( Harry Potter, Gangs of New York), Saoirse Ronan pronounced (Seer-sha) (Lady Bird, The Lovely Bones), and Cillian Murphy (Peaky Blinders, Dark Knight Rises) it’s really no surprise.
Depending on your mood, there’s also quite an array of Irish television shows and movies to choose from. People wishing to indulge in some nostalgia can check out Father Ted (A popular show created by Channel 4 about 3 Irish priests on the fictional craggy island). For the slapstick comedy fans out there, Mrs Browns Boys headed up by Irish comedian Brendan is O’Caroll is also worth a look or Derry Girls on Netflix. Whereas, movie buffs can gorge themselves on The Wind that Shakes the Barley, Dancing at Lughnasa or Michael Collins.

☘️ Get in the kitchen
If there is one thing GBBO has taught is it’s baking is not as easy as it looks. However, more often than not the results can be rather tasty. Aspiring chefs or bakers now have all the time in the world to perfect their ‘signature dishes’. With friends and family being held in self isolation, there will be plenty of ‘willing’ taste testers available to.
Either dust off those recipe books you got for Christmas or go online to check out the likes of Nigella Lawson, Gordon Ramsey or Donal Skeehan for inspiration. Or you could just binge watch Hell’s Kitchen or GBBO. It’s your choice but why not make the most of all this extra indoor time with some great food.
